generals, socialite and author, f.b.i. agent and a tangled web growing by the minute. it's the sex scandal that rocked washington. ahead of important hearings on capitol hill. this is "special report." ♪ ♪ >> bret: good evening. i'm bret baier. the unfair that untanned c.i.a. career of general david petraeus and the assassination of a u.s. ambassador and three others in cincinnati bengals. the former is a story that is changing by the minute. while the latter is being seen in a new light ahead of congressional hearings. we have fox team coverage tonight. intelligence correspondent catherine herridge looks at the matc machinations on capitol hill, and who knew what when. but first, jennifer griffin untangles the complicated relationships here. there are a lot of them. good evening. >> good evening, bret. in the military they call this literal damagcollateral damage. as of monday, c.i.a. director resigned over affair with his biographer. today we learn the top u.s. commander in afghanistan is implicated in the scandal as well as unnamed f.b.i. official who was taken off the case for beco
important thing is how the investigation is expanding. we went to bed, thinking the f.b.i. investigation ended and then we hear the f.b.i. was going back to broadwell's house, paula broadwell's house, petraeus' mistress in north carolina. we don't know what that is all about. then we hear shortly after that, that general john allen, the top u.s. commander in afghanistan, who was here in washington preparing for his confirmation hearings for his next job at the supreme allied commanderrer in europe, the confirmation hearings are on hold and he is now implicated in this controversy, because of 30,000 pages of e-mails to jill kelly, who is the woman who launched this investigation. so it really keeps unraveling. it's like an onion you keep rolling back. we also need to look at the contentious custody battle that jill kelly's sister was involved in. we now understand that petraeus and allen both wrote letters o, asking the judge to show leniency to kelly's sister. was there undue influence used by the two men for these wome women? and was there, were there any laws broken? it just keeps gett
of the republican party because there is no doubt everybody thinks this is the key state. the fbi is finally on the ground in tunisia thanks to two republican united states senators. president obama didn't make it happen. it was republican senators saxby chandlis. tonight the fbi is finally in tunisia to question in person the man caught on video during the attack. how can two republican senators get done in two days what the president of the united states could not get done in weeks? senator lindsey graham joins us. good evening, sir. >> good evening. >> greta: what what is the explanation? i would think with all due respect to the united states senate that in you are the president of the united states you have more muscle than you do if you are a member of the u.s. senate and the fbi has been trying to talk to this man in tunisia. tunisia has said no and then you and senator chandliss got into it two nights ago and voila, you could talk to him. >> i wrote a letter three days ago to the ambassador, u.s. ambassador, tunisia ambassador to the united states saying this is a defining moment in
. but there is some things that are absolutely stunning, that this happened on 9/11, and the fbi at some point was sent in to investigate. and then on october 26, 6 weeks later, foreign policy magazine went to the consulate, went to the cia annex. they found a draft of two letters. and letters that they have no idea thisf they were ever, ever sent anywhere. but a draft of two letters that the fbi never picked up when they were there. and two draft, talk about this fact that that day, they saw some member of the bolivian police force across the street in the upstairs, taking pictures inside the compound and they were worried and concerned. why that evidence was not seized by the fbi, i don't know. another thing that happened, david ignatius of the washington post, met with the cia. the cia gave them a timeline as to what happened. this is what is new for me. number 1, it appears that the last two who were killed were not killed until about 5:00 hirt in the morning, which fwaifs another hour for the -- which gives another hour for the united states to take military action. but secondly, let me r
is prohibited from finding out what the fbi is doing, maybe somebody needs to read the constitution, the fbi is part of the department of yesterday. they actually work for the president. there is a lot here in the way the administration has handled this that i think warrants further investigation as well. >> greta: how do people who think this is an important topic -- or many important topics, how do they convince those who say, well, it's just political? how do they convince people that these things really matter in. >> the most important point is remembering that with four dead americans on september 11, other official americans and american private citizens throughout the middle-east remain at risk. until we fully understand as a nation what happened on september 11, we can't possibly take adequate steps or formulate policies to protect americans who might be at risk. i have never seen this as political. maybe that's just because i used to work in the state department and see the risk that -- that our people have all around the world. but the notion that you can passively wait for an inte
came out after the fbi started investigating paula broadwell for allegedly sending emails to another woman jill kellily a friend of david petraeus family. curing the fbi investigation, agents uncovered thousands of pages of emails between jill kelley and general john allen. he is the man who took over for general petraeus as the top commander in afghanistan. and he has denied that he and jill kelley are having an affair. it's a tangled web no doubt. the president had more to say about the whole thing during his news conference today. ed henry is there and is with us tonight on fox top story. she is a family friend, ed, the president didn't completely rule out the idea that somebody may have leaked some classified information. >> that's right. good evening, shep. the bottom line is the president didn't want to touch any of the salacious details of this for obvious reasons. he didn't want to kick general petraeus while he is down. he made very clear that he thinks general petraeus has had a long career of very exemplary service and noted that how it is ending is obviously not the way a
.o.d., that team was decided not to send the team to coordinate on the ground response to help facilitate the f.b.i. interest in benghazi. you remember it took 24 days the f.b.i. team sent to gain access to compound if benghaz benghazi. we understand that secretary clinton did call to the f.b.i. on the night of the attack and ask that agents be sent. but at that point, the counterterrorism officials are baffled in the wake of the decision on that night and days afterwards by the administration not calling together this very senior counter terrorism security group, bret? >> bret: again, they were not called upon. they were not activated and they would have been in a situation like this. >> this is a group, not just the csg but the fest team, after the embassies were attacked in africa in 1998 and the u.s. cole was attacked, the team is deployed usually. they weren't deployed and the counterterrorism security group was not put in place. there is a degree of frustration as to why the top levels of the administration were not willing to call the terror group together. >> bret: okay. jennifer griffin wi
surfaced that you -- that somehow you got information and you passed it on to the fbi director. what happened? >> well, you know, i was contacted by an individual in the fbi who i have never met, i didn't know. he offered information to me that gave me pause and a cause for alarm. i had no way to corroborate the information. and certainly, the information to me... gave rise to the possibility that there was a national security issues that perhaps our cia director was vulnerable. but i couldn't corroborate or substantiate the information that was given to me. we were about 10 days or a few weeks out before the election. and i didn't want to politicize it, i wanted to make sure that national security wasn't at risk. so i turned to the person and the entity that i felt best equipped to deal with that information, to get to the bottom of it. and this was the fbi director and his office, that we know has an obligation to make sure that our national security is the priority. and the fbi's also obligated to apprise congress if there is a need for or an ongoing investigation or if there is a
the beginning, middle and end? the f.b.i. should be in the white house investigating the crime there. >> bob: please. >> eric: could president obama attained access through the f.b.i. sooner? why did it take -- >> dana: to the -- >> eric: to the detainee in tunisia. >> dana: interrogation and intelligence gathering is the most important thing, get to somebody as quickly as you can and get the information before they shut up. simple, basic, f.b.i. procedure. not just for f.b.i. intelligence and find out are there other attacks planned? who enmight be in the person's web. get the cell phone. chilling with tunisians for weeks apt got a story straight in his mind. good they start to talk to him now but it's fairly late. i don't know why the relationship wasn't that we couldn't talk to him before. >> bob: does anyone see this is a shred of evidence that it was terror attack before it happened? >> eric: before it happened. >> bob: yeah. >> eric: the e-mail that catherine herridge broke last night. catherine herridge or jennifer griffin broke last night that warned them, the tie to al-qaeda. immine
on the ladies house happen this week if it was going on fors? i thinklet fbi has a lot of questions to answer. >> a lot of people have serious doubts and misgivings about the administration's contention that the president learned after the election about the sex scandal that destroid general petraeus's career. it is congressman chaffetz out of utah. thank you for being here. why does it stick in your craw that eric holder told the president after the election was over. >> general petraeus is it the head of the cia. if there is it an investigation and the question of what he's doing in his personal life, i think that should come to the attention . president of the united states. he may choose not to do anything. but leave him in the dark is unexcusible. >> do you believe that there is it some misrepresentation going on? >> i am worry about somewhere between the fbi and department. justice. someone didn't take it to the president of the united states. and when you are the period of the central intelligence agency. that is vital something that may be compromisinglet person. i don't want to the e
response approach being have allowed the f.b.i. to acess the site sooner than the 24 days it would eventually take. but the most senior people of government worked on it. secretary of defense chairman of the joint cheats and secretary of state and senator john mccain looks at this and said clearly the administration acted this way to hide something. >> this is a classic scandal where almost every day and another shoe drops. i think it could be bad as water gate and one of our veterans said no one died in water gate. they have a point. >> yesterday white house press secretary jay carny said the president is anticipating the results of the f.b.i.'s investigation. back to you. >> gretchen: just to carry this story further. we saw the spokesperson for the state department said that the highest level of people were involved in this. i am not so sure that is a good admission to make. if the highest people were involved including the secretary of state and secretary of defense and possibly the vice-president and president, and all of this happened on their watch. i am not sure it is good
important question is he also knew he was under investigation by the f.b.i., speaking of general petraeus right now. that's the big question. >> eric: here is an opportunity right now for him to say exactly why he said video when all evidence points that -- >> gretchen: either way he would have to say that one of the two testimonies is not correct. >> eric: right. >> gretchen: so i'm not -- that's problematic. >> brian: before we move to the next talking point, remember what bill crystal point, he started that by saying, do you want the official line or do you want to know what really happened? then he went on to -- >> eric: bill crystal -- >> brian: i heard that from other people. >> gretchen: so in the meantime yesterday, members of congress saw this 30-minute compulsion of video, part drone that was actual complete part surveillance video from the two sites. that's how they came to the determination, yeah, it was terror. but at the same time, believe it or not, listen to some members of congress who are democrats going back to blaming bush? >> these unfair attacks on ambassador susan r

. >> requests by fox news to find out when paula broadwell knew she was the subject of an fbi investigation and whether it was before the attack in benghazi there maybe no comment from the fbi, shep. >> shepard: all right, catherine. you are learning more about what general petraeus said in that closed door meeting? >> well, shep, fox news has told the former cia director david petraeus insisted at least twice during the classified hearings friday that the cia memo about the attack included the term al qaeda and there was tremendous pressure to get at the talking points and not to quote relitigate every issue. reviewed by the deputies committee which includes appointees from the white house as well as under secretaries from defense state officials from the cia as well as the miller. i don't have any comment on that one way or the other. i frankly cannot speak to that at all. the cia may have some comment later today or the dni may have some comment later today with regard to the time line on the talking points. >> that said, today there was no response on the time line from the dni. the nat

-qaeda references were dropped in the c.i.a. talking points at the request of the f.b.i. because the bureau did not want to compromise an ongoing criminal investigation. but late this afternoon, c.i.a. officials called to correct the record, that it was actually them. rice met with senator joe lieberman who asked if she was coached by the add f before her talk hoe appearances. >> she said no, she was not given messaging points at all by the white house prior to her appearance on those sound morning shows. >> so the meeting today did not settle the matter. it certainly is not as far as these republicans are concerned. >> shepard: what's the response from the administration? >> in that written statement, rice who was joined by the acting c.i.a. director on the hill, said, quote, we explained the talking points provided by the intelligence community and the initial assessment upon which they were based were incorrect in the key respect there was no protest or demonstration in benghazi. also at the white house briefing, jay carney seemed to try and put the focus on the investigation and not ambassa
. why we haven't -- fbi most wanted list, if you want to have civil justice, or send the military in and do what's necessary. neither has happened in that regard, sean. >> sean: i agree with all of that, but it seems to me there's an unwillingness, a mysterious reluctance to admit the simple truth, that there are radical islamists that want a worldwide caliphate, and they have no problems killing innocent men, women and children. >> shouldn't they brought to u.s. soil? they make a mockery of our system, shows a weakness on the part of the united states, certainly not the message that we want to spread to the rest of the world or do us harm. why do they need a u.s. presence here? they don't have a legal classification that warrants that type of placement. >> sean: i'll tell you why, because they can get law books in our prisons and figure out ways to sue the united states of america. >> i think the president is in a big pickle on this. he's made promises all over the place. i don't think he's going to be able to owner o honor any of th. >> like closing gitmo. >> sean: time for our
